About this Item

Substantial collection of the works of a popular Scottish poet (1686?1758). Almost everything here is either composed in Scots dialect or Scottish-themed, including an odd but charming ode to the plaid, which Ramsay finds especially admirable when it serves to adorn belles; one elegy mourns the loss of a Canongate alehouse-keeper. Ramsay's pastoral play "The Gentle Shepherd" is included, and there is a => substantial glossary at the back of the volume which defines potentially unfamiliar words such as meikle and shawps. 8vo (17.4 cm, 6.85"). xii, [4], 426 (lacking 239?40), [22] pp. ESTC T147963; despite the internal absence of publication information, the collation of this volume matches that given by ESTC. Contemporary sprinkled calf, spine with gilt-stamped leather title label and gilt-stamped floral devices in compartments, a little worn. Small inked ownership inscription to top of title-page. Some foxing, not severe; last leaves dog-eared. One text leaf torn out (being the middle part of one of the epithalamia), as also one preliminary leaf, and so a ?busted bibliophile?s copy? ? despite its real interest and attractions!.
